Employability

These courses provide specialist education tailored to the requirements of both the upstream and downstream petroleum industry. The relevance of this education combined with careful selection of candidates has encouraged oil and gas companies to target our graduates for recruitment over the years.

The petroleum industry is subject to dramatic changes of fortune over time, with the oil price capable of very rapid rates of change in either direction. Petroleum, however, remains the dominant source of energy, with current world production of oil and gas at record rates. In this environment, companies face increasing technological and commercial challenges to keep their wells flowing and are increasingly dependent on input from petroleum engineers and geoscientists.

It is widely recognised that a steady influx of fresh people and ideas is vital for the longer-term success and stability of an organisation, and it is therefore expected that recruitment will continue, especially for those with motivation and the appropriate qualifications.

Your programme of study

Regulation of energy is a complex area covering everything across the supply chain. It is also fraught with controversy and advocates attempting to clean up the environment, often providing high profile press when things aren't seen as socially responsible. Energy law is a specialist area which is mainly concerned with the huge risks involved in extracting energy within wild and remote environments and dealing with waste products, removal of facilities, implementation of new facilities and operations with environment at the forefront of business operations. There are huge implications for corporate and social responsibility and the energy industry sees it as imperative that they get their regulation and responsibilities right. The negative effects of getting regulation wrong can be hugely costly and very damaging to reputation in a highly regulated and safety conscious industry.

The ability to manage the business through change without loosing time and money and understanding how to work with regulation from government level can be a challenge, especially when business does not follow a straight line of growth. You not only learn the law in terms of energy and environment but you also cover downstream regulation to customer supplies and renewable energy areas which you may also be involved with if you work for a large multinational for example. Many people are not aware of just how much work goes into getting regulation right for company and government and how much potential there is to save the environment from unnecessary practices which put all at risk. In this respect this is a very rewarding subject to study and work in if you are interested in environment and regulation.

Energy Law is an environmental range of laws specifically aligned to exploitation of minerals. Throughout the process you will learn about all the regulatory requirements within the supply chain from extraction to supply. Aberdeen is at the heart of the energy industry and you will benefit from industry networks and regulators situated in the city. This will give you a really good perspective and insight into the discipline and how it is transferred to employment in the energy industry internationally.

Your programme of study

Are you interested in where we source our future energy and how we protect what we have now and in the future? Do you have environmental concerns about how energy is extracted and what regulation is in place to prevent damage to the environment?  This programme focuses on two main interlinked areas within energy management of politics and law.  Within the political setting you understand regulation as you do in the legal setting but you look at policies, regulation and interdependencies and relationships globally to understand how risk, security and future policy may alter and how this then translates in law. There is a heightened senses of awareness now within energy and climate and an increased sense of urgency about pollution controls and concerns about energy reserves.  This is set within a volatile political and social environment in many countries some of whom supply energy globally. You look at historical oil crisis, security, and politics and you connect this to environmental regulation systems, and the different legal systems and approaches in law.

This programme gives you a wide breadth of skills and knowledge in an essential area of the energy industry, both upstream and downstream, commercial and domestic globally. You are taught in the energy capital of Europe in Aberdeen city, home to a multitude of FTSE 100 companies from the energy industry and you learn from both its learning's and that of academics who follow it closely at Aberdeen. There is a lot of historic case law and knowledge gained from the energy industry which has influenced energy law over time and much of it has related to the tightening of mechanisms and regulation to prevent environmental damage from occurring. There are also economic influences on the energy industry which can rapidly alter the economics of countries when suppliers change prices, lower or raise production or change group agreements. Even within the domestic market energy suppliers continue to influence the prices we pay for our domestic energy which can in turn affect domestic economics within countries.

You can work as a lawyer or regulator across the supply chain from source to domestic energy or you can work as a consultant or advisor within policy. Within the energy industry itself you can be a vital part of project initiation in understanding policy, guidance, risks and laws to support growth alongside social and legal responsibility to ensure integrity in all areas of energy extraction.

This course provides comprehensive knowledge and practical training in the spread of microorganisms (predominantly bacterial and viral pathogens), disease causation and diagnosis and treatment of pathogens significant to public health. The increasing incidence of microbial infections worldwide is being compounded by the rapid evolution of drug-resistant variants and opportunistic infections by other organisms. The course content reflects the increasing importance of genomics and molecular techniques in both diagnostics and the study of pathogenesis.

In response to a high level of student interest in viral infections, the School has decided to offer the opportunity for students who focus on viruses in their module and project choices to be awarded a Master's degree in Medical Microbiology (Virology). This choice will depend on the module selection of the individual student in Terms 2 and 3 and choice of project.

Graduates from this course move into global health careers related to medical microbiology in research or medical establishments and the pharmaceutical industry.

The Bo Drasar Prize is awarded annually for outstanding performance by a Medical Microbiology student. This prize is named after Professor Bohumil Drasar, the founder of the MSc Medical Microbiology course.

The Tsiquaye Prize is awarded annually for the best virology-based project report.
